This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm not sure which forum is better for this question, this one or WebServices, since I'm running into this problem while using Apache CXF. But the core problem is with JAXB annotations.
I'm trying to eventually get my response to be a simple list of items, like so:
And here are my classes
I had to create the OrdMedList class because without it, the service interface was initially returning an array of OrdMeds, but there was no <OrdMedList> tag, even though I had a @WebResult(name="OrdMedList") annotation on that. I read that this was a problem with JAXB, and was recommended to create the OrdMedList class.
So now the problem is that the result xml is
I guess it grabs that 'ordMeds' name from the property of the OrdMedList class. So I tried annotating that with the @XmlElement(name="OrdMed") but that created a JAXB error that said:
IllegalAnnotationExceptions Class has 2 properties of the same name "ordMeds" this problem is related to the following location: at public java.util.List com.test.services.OrdMedList.getOrdMeds() at com.test.services.OrdMedList this problem is related to the following location: at public java.util.List com.test.services.OrdMedList.ordMeds at com.test.services.OrdMedList
How can I get the response formatted the way I want? Seems like this is much harder than it should be.
